hamlet (the notes)

SEPTEMBER 30 - 8 PM

PRESENTED BY JOHN FITZGERALD JAY

After the first preview of his new production Hamlet, a director - variously inspired and exasperated, and often downright deluded - begins his notes. 

With the audience serving as the cast of players, artists and technicians, Hamlet (The Notes) is a joyously playful look into the inexact science that is the making of theatre.

This fall, Theatre Antigonish, in conjunction with the university community, is staging the provocatively titled, SLUT, a play creating awareness and challenging sexism and sexual violence. 

 SLUT was developed by its authors through an extensive workshop process with young women in New York and premiered at the Lynn Redgrave Theatre NYC in 2013. 

With an all-female cast of eleven, by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Slut captures the real lives of teens and young adults.
